Shell,

Nice job. There is one thing that bothers me though - the background to the left and right of the center photo - it's a completely different background with clutter that adds nothing to the collage and is kind of jarring because the buildings and such don't belong to any of the images you want to focus on. Even a plain colored background might look a bit better. Clutter in a single image is rough on the eye - with so many photos a collage can already be a bit cluttered. So I think a little more 'white space' would be better than what's in the background now (note I don't mean leave it white but something basic and plain and not another image).

Just my two cents!

Otherwise good job!!

John,

The entire background IS the ball diamond, the "buildings" that you refer to are billboards (part of the diamond) , which the players and parents relate to and have requested that it would be part of the collage.

Part of my job is to keep the customer happy, there is various ways of arranging collages, each and every one of us have different opinions, what you like someone else might consider plain.

I appreciate your candor, constructive criticism does help give you ideas.

Thanks Tammie!

You would first start out with the background of your choice, fix it how you would like, then crop to your picture size, (this is in an 8x10 crop).

I use CS2, open the picture, click on the marquee tool, with a feather of 25- 29, (it is your preference), then I minimize the picture, and use the move tool to drag it over to the background. I move it to the desired place, and use control T to make it the size that I am needing. Repeat until you have all of the pictures that you want in it.

I hope that this will be of some help to you, if you need any more help, just ask!


Shell:-)
